Cléry, Deluxe, Joly, Gariguette, Salsa, Malwina, Darselect, Asia, Sonata, Magnum, Rubis des jardins, Faith, Flair, Korona are the stars of the season, from spring to mid-July. The fresh and fragrant Cléry is the first to show up and the Malwina, the last.

We like authentic, tasty and rustic varieties and the advantage of going to the pickings is that we can taste them all before filling the basket.

Then, it’s up to the ascenders to take over until autumn. Charlotte, Mara des Bois, Cirafine and Mariguette are the stars of the post-season, less productive but tasty.
